Dream Card by Jenny Alia

Hi,  it's Jenny here sharing a new card.  I've had a lot going on lately (mostly fun but busy) and I wanted to make a fun, lighthearted card.  I pulled out my alcohol ink markers (Copics and Shin Han), Kraftin' Kimmie stamp, some of my favorite patterned paper colors and started playing.  

The bottom layer is 5 3/4 square piece of patterned paper, topped with a 5 1/2 piece of white paper that I embelished with the Silver Stitching Tool die.  I added another patterned paper on top and cut into it with the next largest size of the stitching tool.  I love the stitched edge this creates.  I then layered the new Pierced Stackers #3, a Royal Scandinavian Oval Doily, and then the top layer is a Silver Stacker from the Oval Classic set.

I cut the smaller Dream word out of the Dream Big Phrase set and glued it to the Paris Signs 4.  The beautiful Whistle a Happy Tune note was cut out of gray paper and sponged with cracked pistachio distress ink.

Last I made the pink flowers using the Small Gardenia, distress inks and a stylus tool to mold them.  I scrunched the flowers up while they were still wet with ink to get a more distressed crinkly look and after it dried I added extra worn lipstick distress ink to the edges with a foam applicator. The blue daisy was made with the Shasta Daisy die.  The edges were sponged with cracked pistachio distress ink and molded with a stylus tool.  I cut the leaves from green paper using the new Leafy Flourish die. Yellow rhinestones were glued to the centers of the pink flowers and a blue pearl was added to the daisy to add sparkle.
